What a very structured city this is. From the window on the plane coming down, I could see rows and rows of tall buildings standing like domino sticks jutting above the ground. Being finally down into the midst of the city, I was impressed by the well planned layout of it's infrastructure. Very pedestrian friendly. Felt to me that foremost in the thoughts of the city planners upon building were concerns to provide its citizens a safe and easy access to all the city's streets and wide perimeter. Unfortunately though, the land is not big enough to easily accomodate the traffic of over 10 million people in a city only 0.6% the size of its whole country resulting jam packed traffic just about everywhere most especially during peak hours.

I really didn't mind the traffic out there since the subway system from my experience is not bad at all!
Seoul to me is a place I'd love to come back to again....Great food, ever so shy yet friendly people, great shopping and just sooo alive. I love korea :)
